'Never before had I heard music, let alone traditional music, played like this.' - Dave Flynn
Following their sold-out concert in 2010, the fiddle and guitar duo return for another gripping performance with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
The extraordinary fiddle player Martin Hayes is one of the most remarkable musicians to come out of Ireland in the last 50 years. Dennis Cahill's unique guitar accompaniment allows Hayes the freedom to take our simple, complex, harrowing and beautiful traditional music into uncharted territories.
A highlight will be Dave Flynn's Aontacht ('Unity'), commissioned by RTÉ in 2010.
'You don't just want to hear him in the now, you want to stay with him to experience the future he's so clearly promising.' - Michael Dervan (The Irish Times) on Martin Hayes
